Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Fiona Hardingham, Matt Haynes

Romantic Fiction • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Fiona Hardingham and Matt Haynes deliver a fantastic performance as two historical characters who come together despite their very different hardships. In 1666, the plague has left Cecilia a widow shortly after her marriage. David, a foreign Jewish doctor, is hoping to treat Cecilia's mental health. Initially, the protagonists have such different backgrounds that they might as well be from separate novels, but when they meet, the narrators create a stunning duet. While David is seeking creditability as a Jewish doctor in London and Cecilia is in constant mourning, they both share the same stubbornness and cynicism through observations that are delivered with quirkiness and humor. The budding romance is also depicted at a believable pace. An unconventional performance is infused with suspense and banter. G.M.
